We’ve got good news for Bamon fans – and bad news for those in Delena’s corner. The new promo poster for Season 6 of “The Vampire Diaries” has been released, and it sets the stage for some interesting character interactions in the next chapter of the CW series.
Viewers will remember that Season 5 of “The Vampire Diaries” concluded with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) following through on a plan to kill the Travelers. The plan involved sacrificing their lives – but they had a backup set in place in order to return to the land of the living. Thanks to Liv (Penelope Mitchell), Elena and a handful of other Mystic Falls loved ones were able to pass through Bonnie (Kat Graham). But Damon wasn’t one of the lucky ones. When Liv’s magic got cut off, Damon was stuck on the crumbling Other Side – permanently dead. The blow was devastating for the group, but what no one realized was that when the Other Side vanished, Bonnie would disappear too.
The deaths of Bonnie and Damon have been a point of focus for fans since Season 5 ended. Since Graham and Somerhalder are confirmed series regulars in Season 6, fans can expect to see them in some form or another – which sparked rumors of a romance between the unlikely pair. Hardcore Delena fans didn’t want to give any attention to the Bamon romance speculation, but the new promo poster seems to hint that a relationship between Damon and Bonnie IS possible in Season 6.
The poster features Damon, Bonnie, Elena, Stefan (Paul Wesley), Matt (Zach Roerig), Caroline (Candice Accola), Tyler (Michael Trevino), Jeremy (Steven R. McQuee), Alaric (Matthew Davis) and Enzo (Michael Malarkey). But all eyes are on Bonnie and Damon on the left side. The characters are not smoky or transparent, meaning that they could potentially return to the land of the living in Season 6 of “The Vampire Diaries.” But the most shocking thing about the pair is that they seem to be holding on to one another.
On the opposite side of the image is Elena. Damon’s former girlfriend doesn’t seem to be worried about Bonnie and Damon holding onto each other – because she’s clutching Stefan’s hand.
Does the poster hint that Damon and Bonnie will strike up a relationship while Elena and Stefan rekindle their love? “Vampire Diaries” fans will have to wait until Season 6 premieres on The CW on Thursday, Oct. 2, at 8 p.m. EDT. Tweet your thoughts to @AmandaTVScoop.
